An Intriguing Journey May 14, 2004
"Trans-Siberian Express" is an early Warren Adler novel, but it is a fine novel. It tells the story of an American doctor, Dr. Alex Cousins, and his internal conflict, while on a train with a memorable cast of characters. On the train is a beautiful KGB agent that Dr. Cousins will fall for; a former Gulag inmate looking for revenge; an ambitious KGB agent who will resort to murder to get what he wants; a Jew trying to start over; and a general awaiting orders. This story reminds us that both sides fear nuclear attack, and that the Russians were not all alike. It is an impressive journey and a fine romance.
